    Personal injury claims in Barnsley


    Personal injury claims in Barnsley

    One of the biggest issues we face in personal injury law is making sure everyone who has a right to claim gets the help and support they need. This means making sure we address the people who often fall through the cracks. The numbers of personal injury claims in Barnsley have risen in the past few years – much to the horror of insurance companies, but there are still many people who don’t know that they can get help for their health problems.

    Long term conditions

    Perhaps the biggest concern is for people who suffer from long term medical conditions. Often they can be entitled to compensation without knowing it. The problem is that they, like many people, believe that only single accidents can be claimed for.

    In this article we’re not concerned with things such as slips, trips or falls; road accidents or injuries in the workplace. What concerns us here are those long term conditions which can cause problems often without people ever realising it.

    These are things such as repetitive strain injury, industrial deafness and asbestos poisoning which are normally caused by the working environment in which you’ve been for a long time. Until now many people have taken the option of putting up and shutting up, but that’s not really a good way to go.

    Making personal injury claims in Barnsley

    Although longer term conditions can be more difficult to pin down, and will need the services of an expert lawyer, the rules surrounding this type of claim are the same.

    The condition must have been caused as a result of someone else’s negligence. In the case of long term injuries this is most likely to be your employer. They are all required by law to provide a safe and comfortable working environment, but unfortunately this does not always happen.

    Workers have been known to work for decades in dangerous and unhealthy environments. When symptoms occur they either fail to make the connection or feel that this is simply part of the job.

    However, this is not the case, which is why we’re happy to help anyone who thinks they have had health problems as a consequence of their long term environment.
